Last Friday, JusticeCenter staff had the opportunity to hear a presentation and engage in a lively discussion about responding to domestic violence victims' needs from Jennifer DeCarli, Executive Director of the New York Family JusticeCenter in Brooklyn. The New York Family JusticeCenter is an innovative program that reduces barriers faced by domestic violence victims and elder abuse victims seeking help. The program gives victims comprehensive services by placing dedicated domestic violence prosecutors, City agency and community services staff under one roof. The Brooklyn office, opened in 2005, was the first Family Justice Centers in New York City and one of the first in the country.
